Clowne Junior School

Working together for success and happiness

Homework Information



The children have 8 spellings each week which are set on a Monday and are tested on the following Monday. Children who achieve 8 correct spellings will also achieve a Dojo (the school's reward system). The children have 20 minutes three afternoons a week to practise their spellings.



Little Wandle


At Clowne Junior School, we use the Little Wandle phonics programme. If your child accesses this, they will be sent home with a reading book linked to the sounds they are learning.

Further details about this programme can be found on the website:





The children are expected to read at least three times each week and for this to be recorded in their reading record. The children's reading records are checked on a Monday by your child's teacher and for each three times that they have read, they will receive a Dojo point. 


If your child makes a mistake when reading, encourage them to sound out the word in order to make an educated guess. Discuss the text with your child and clarify any unknown words as this helps them to understand the text better. Ask them who their favourite character was and why and which part of the story was most exciting? Why?

What did they learn from the facts in their non fiction book? It's always good to also try to get your child to start reading a series of books from the same author and then compare these with a different author too.


Please encourage your child to read a variety of texts such as magazines, newspapers, comics, instructions to help them gauge a better understanding of a range of text genres.


Here are a few suggested Y3 books/authors for your child to explore:



Homework books for English and Maths


The children mark their Maths and English homework each Friday and are then set their next week's homework. Their pages are posted on Class Dojo each Friday too. The children are only expected to complete the page set in each book per week. Please do not complete extra pages as the pages may be set on a subsequent week.



We encourage the children to work on their times tables using the link below. The children should have their passwords from their class teacher. If they have misplaced their password or you need a replacement one, please speak to your child's teacher.
